Poured from a can into a tulip glass. 2/22 canning date. Not good, I'll pass. Taste syrupy

Super malty, a little bit too boozy for my tastes. Wish it was a little bit more aggressively hopped so the bitterness could temper the sweetness. It's not bad- not my favorite, I'd drink it again but wouldn't seek this one out

From the 1 pint can dated 12/22/14. Sampled on December 29, 2014 so it is pretty darn fresh.

Attractive appealing copper-amber pour with long lasting, foamy cream colored head. Lots of lacing.

The aroma is all at once resiny and floral with a sweet caramel malt note. No booze for a 7 day old 9.7% beer.

Medium to full, creamy body.

The taste is a fabulous malt-hopped balance with a hoppy bite finishing off the rear. Short-lived but delightful.
